3 stars Second album from this Chilean band is really enjoying one! Plenty of energy, very optimistic sound, elements of Latin folklore added...

Just to imagine their music there, just think about King Crimson ( who is their huge influence!) with characteristic Stick angular sound, played on a Latin manner - with Chilean flute, Latin folk elements, nice melodic sax, few jazz fusion arrangements and plenty of metal guitars over it.

All the music is not complex, but more dynamic, energetic, oriented more to your heart, not minds. Compositions are quite different, and all the album is pleasant and accessible listening. For sure, you will feel King Crimson shadows on every step there, but it looks guys don't worry too much about it. They just play music they like on their own, Latin metal fusion manner.

Don't expect to find some new things there - this album is great energizer, and it's enough! Not the music for jazz fusion fans for sure, but those with love to KC legacy, Latin flavour and melodic metal guitars would like it I think.

P.S. Mostly instrumental work, it has few vocals on The Mars Volta manner (In Spanish).

My rating is 3+.
